Under debate is a House-passed
measure to extend automobile and
telephone excise taxes which are
scheduled to drop sharply on
April 1. Under previous legisla-
tion, the-7 per cent levy on autos
is to drop to 2 per cent and the
10 per cent impost on phone serv-
ice is to go to 1 per cent.
The House adjourned Thurs-
day until noon Monday.
However, since the Senate
skirmishing centers on side issues
and there is no substantial op-
position to extending these levies,
the Internal Revenue Service an-
nounced it plans to continue col-
lections at current rates in belief
that the extension will be voted
retroactively in the near future.
Reversing an action taken ear-
lier, the Senate voted 50 to 32 to
bar after Jan. 1 the issuance of
tax exempt municipal or state
bonds for the purpose of financing
industrial development by private
The Treasury Department al-
ready had issued an executive order
halting issuance of such bonds-
known as IDB's--effective March
15. But in a Tuesday test the Sen-
ate voted 51 to 32 to continue the
tax exempt status of such bonds
The IDB's are used to raise
funds for industrial plants and
are retired through rentals paid
by the benefiting company. Be-
cause the bonds are issued in the
name of a local or state govern-
ment unit, interest on them is tax
exempt and, in effect, enables the
corporation to raise funds at a
cost substantially lower tharl
through private borrowing.
On a 44-38 roll call, the Sen-
ate rejected an amendment by
Sen. Karl E. Mundt, (R-SD),
which would have .imposed a 20
per cent added tax on all the in-
